We all know what Larry Fitzgerald can do, including Larry Fitzgerald. And it’s preseason. But let’s face it, it was still good to see him get five catches against Tennessee. It was a glimmer of sanity while the offensive questions – like who will play quarterback and who will play tackle – linger.
But Fitz wasn’t worried, so I guess the rest of us shouldn’t.
“I’d rather have catches against Seattle anyway,” Fitzgerald said, noting the regular-season opener. “Those are the ones that count. Obviously I want to have touches but I’m not going to be complaining about preseason touches.”
The quarterback situation will obviously impact Fitzgerald, and his 80 catches last year were well below the normal standard he sets and about 20 less than he wanted. But whatever is going on offensively, including the possibility the Cards run a bit more to help the QB situation, everyone knows Fitz will ultimately be the guy the offense leans upon.
“It’s a long season,” Fitzgerald said. “I’ll be called on to work a lot when the time is right. We don’t gameplan (right now). I just stay on the same side and don’t do anything different. If I was by myself they were going to roll over on me (with a safety). I know Coach Whiz and (offensive coordinator) Mike Miller and (receivers) coach (Frank) Reich, they will find ways to free me up and I’ll make my plays.”
